UK farmers will 'grow more food' if no Brexit deal - minister

This whole article seems to be based on the assumption that the UK would impose tariffs on food imports, thus increasing consumer prices, but why? Why would the punish themselves????
Farming leaders have accused Chris Grayling of “talking tripe” after he argued in a television interview that the UK could just grow more food to keep prices down if Britain crashes out of the EU.

“We haven’t had a UK food policy for 43 years,” the national food and environmental policy has been led by the EU since the UK joined the European Economic Community in 1973.
